    I've heard stories but I have never fished in these two lakes. any input on either would be great. just want to get some scouting done before the not cold and rainy weather hits.

    I don't know anything about Seneca, but Salt Fork has some nice channels and a few "Small" Flatheads. Go prepared.

    Shallow water, near old river channels.

    Salt Fork has plenty of Shad, Bluegill, Crappie, Carp..... bait galore.

    Lots of fish 30-60+ lbs.

    Seneca has fewer fish but average fish is larger I hear.

    Good Luck and welcome.

    Ive done a lot of fishing at SaltFork. Ive always had good luck in the small creeks leading in/out of the lake. Ive also been told that fishing the Marina they are averaging 30-45lbs flatties. Seneca Ive fished a few times, thats where we hold our family reunions at, but ive never had any great luck. there is a spot on seneca they call Cadillac point that is supposed to be a hot spot.

    the Cabela's store in Wheeling WV. I'm told that both of those fish came from Seneca Lake. I've done okay at the two lower islands way down from the dam area. There are some really big ones in that lake. Good luck.
